THE WIFE FOR ME.

fiim in Boston with whom he had served an

It would be interesting to collect in a single
ifyiiiK the chapter or verse which broucht light
to the darkened mind, and balm to Ihe sorrow
ing heart. Dr. James Hamilton, in one of bis
fascinating works, has given a few illustra
tions from which we make the following ex
tract: "Suppose that each were to mark in golden
t.-ttcrs the text which has been to him the gale
of heaven; the text through whose open latticv
a reconciled bo'l has looked lorlh ou him, or
through whose telescope he first has glimpsed
the crass. The Ethiopian chamberlain would
mark the fifty-third chapter of Isaiah, for it
wns wlun reading about the Lamb led to the
sliinthttr that his eye wnsdiiected lo the Lamb
of Uod, who takelh away the sin of '.he woild,
and he "sent ou his w.iy rejoicing. The Kng
lish maityr liiimey, would indicate the f.iith
ful saying, "Christ Jesus came into the norld
to Eave sinners, of which 1 am the chief;'' for
it was in sight of these words the burden fell
fiom his hack which fasts and penances had
only rendered more weighty. There was a
"stricken deer." who bud long been panting
for the water brooks, but he had yet found no
coin.ort; wlie-n one day listlessly takinc up a
Testament, it opened at the words, "Whom
Clod has sent forth a propitiation, through faith
in his blood, lo declare his righteousness fur
Ihe sins that are past;' ' and instantly realized
the sufficiency of the atonement and embraced
the Gospel; and, doubtless Ihe bard of Otney
won Id signalize, by the most brilliant memuria',
the spot where the sou of Kighteousnets filst
shone into his .soul. "Mow unto Ihe King
eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God,
he honor and glory f r ever and ever: cmen."
These were tne words which instahtly coiiver
ted iulo a livinc temple the calm and stately
mind of Jonathan lidwards: and we ninv be

Cycles in our Politics—A False Theory.
A New York journal has advanced the no
tion that thero are. cycles in American politics;
that these cycles each lake about a generation
to revolve; the first cycle related to the con
struction of the Constitution, that the second
was engaged with our foreign relations of the
FeJeial government lo slavery.
The idea of cycles in our politics is true
tliii extent, that, so far, once in twenty five
years, a crisis has come about in Federal ull'.i.rs.
Such a crisis happened in lbGOivl.eu Jeli'e-r-son
drove the Federal party from power;
another occurred in 1 8'JS, when Jackson broke
up the old parly organizations; and another
impends now, for, which ever candidate suc
ceeds, the Kansas Nebraska question, ihe is
sue of the contest, will, we presume, be deci
ded definitely. Yet these cycle's, so far from
determining constitutional questions radically
different, huve only resolved, for each new
generation, Ihe one same constitutional issue.
Under whatever aspect 'he contest has been
waged, the real question has been the same,
whether the Constitution should be construed
literally or liberally, in favor of the general
government or ngaiusl it.
No one familiar with American history will
denv. for exumple, that the issue between
Jelfersou and Adorns was of this character.
The Constitution, indeed, had hardly bten
established, before that party, which, in the
Convention, hud labored for a consolidated
national government, but which had been de
leated, began lo construe tint instrument ac
cording to the bias of its opt ions, nnd suc
ceeded, chiefly through Hamilton's influence,
in obtaining Ibe endorsement of the general
government, in a degree, lo its views. The
lirsl national bonk, the famous judiciary act,
and other measures of a similar character,
passed in the very fust years of the neu gov
ernment, alarmed the advocates of Slate rights,
ol a paity
in opposition, under the secret leadership
Jefferson. So long, however, as Washington
continued in office, the public confidence
his character postponed the contest.
when this great and good man, w ho had med
itated so successlnlly between both parlies,
had retired to private life, then party spirit
no'.land finally led to trie organization
predominated. Un one side, the elder Adnmx,
by his Alien and Seditiou laws, pushed
of powers of Ihe Federal Government 10 the verge
of practical consolidation. On the o'her,
,. irgniiit and Kentucky, hy U.eir (anions rfso
luteins of '9S, summoned, as with the blast of
a trumpet, the menus ol tate rie-Iits to pre-
serve the fortress of constitutional freedom.
The world knews the result. I he friends of
strict construction triumphed; at first, indeed,
by a close vote, bu! afterwards by majorities,
which Ihe tact of JeiTerson ond the sober coi
victionsof the people slicngtlieiied year by
Time passed. Another generaliin crime
upon the sta-;e. New questions aiuie. The
old parlies, meantime, hod died out, so thai
under Monroe's Presidency, Federalists and
Itcpublican ceased almost to he lerrns cf prac-j

that instrument, sn that statesmen, who hid
opposed the Alien and Sedition, had since
chartered Ihe second United Stales Hank, and
were now about to vote for a tariff for protcc-
tion. Al length, after a temporary chaos, ini
which Jackson was chosen for his first term,!
partiesaroseundenew names, lae one calling
itself the National ltenullican, the other the!
Petnocrntic. from this time out the war or
National polilics raged principally on the three
great questions of the canstilulionnlity of a!
Uiii'ed states nanK, tne cqiistinuioiiaiity of n
tariff other than for revenue, and the constPu-
tioualily of depositinghe public moneys else
where than in the sub lreury offices. Even
the winning party only gradually eliminuted
itself from the erroneous opinions which had
become eurrenl on these subjects, liut it did
this at Inst; it fell back ii a strict construc
tion of the constitution; and the people even
tually sustained it.
The present E.crulho began his term of
office something in the, same manner that
Monrc-e began his, imiu, a universal uisiiue-i
cmtiui of of old parly lines. Lut, during his
administration, a question lias arisen tno:

States differ from the other Jfteen. The other
party claim that the people! of the Territories;
should be letl to settle this question lor mem-
selves, and that the Federal government has
no riht to interfere, except to keep order till
a lawful government has been instituted by a
bona Jule population. It is, under another
aspect, the old controversy as lo a strict or a
liberal construction of Ihe powers of the (Jon-
era I government.

nt the failure of his house than we should be
at the failure of any other wild and desperate

Mr. Fiemonl's nomination, and now, when the
bondholders waul their money, Messrs. Pal

money, and cou't pay it over to those to whom
it rightly belongs. Every business man with
an ounce of sagacity has seen from the start
that the nomination of Mr. Fremont for ihe
Presidency was Hie desperate gome of a bold
and desperate set of speculators. His great

The Black Republicans Endeavoring to Keep
up Difficulties in Kansas—Their Opposition
to the Bill of Pacification.
If anybody doubted that the tilack repub
licans were endeavoring to keep up the trou
bles in Kansas, thinking that by their instru
mentality political capital could be made, it
would be removed by their opposition to tho
late measure of pacification, which has juct
passed the r enate. The bill is so fnr in its
provisions thot not a single objection can Le
urged against it. Its enactment into a law,
hrrwever, would take away from the disunicn
isls polilbal cnpilnl, and they therefore oppose
it. Let it be kept before the people that the
Black Republican Congress are stienuuusly
opposing the Senate bill, the synopsis of which
is is fallows :
"The bill provides for the rppointment by
the President, with the advice and consent of
the Senate, ol fhe Commistioners, to be taken
Irom the different Sections 0! the Union, ami
to represent fairly all political parties, who
shall take a census of all the legal voters
in the Territory under the act, and make a
lair apportionment of delegates to be elected
by each county, to fhnu a constitution and in
stitute a Slate government. When the appor
tionment si all be made the Commissioners are
to remain in session every day, except Sunday,
al the place most convenient for ibe inhabi
tants of said Teiritoiy to hear al! complaints,
examine witnesses, and correct all errors in
said lift of voters, which list shall be previ
ously printed and generally circulated through
the Teriilory, and posted in nt least three of
the most public places of each election dis
trict; and so soon as all the errors have been
thus cortected in said lis, s, the Commissioners
are requested lo cstise a correct list of Ihe
legal voters lo be printed, and copies furnish
ed to each Judga of election, to be put up at
the places of voliug, and circulated in every
county in the Territory before the day ofelec
lion no person to be allowed to vote whose
name does not appear as a legal voter on such
"The bill further provides that no law shall
be made or have force nnd effect in the Terri
tory, which shall requiie a test oath, or an
oath to support any Act of Congress or other
Legislative Act, as a qualification for nnycivit
office or publio trust, ur for any employment
or profession, or lo serve ai a juror, or to vote
at any election, or which shall impose any
lest as a condition of voting by any qualified
voter, or which shall prohibit free discussion
of any law or subject of legislation in the
Territory, or free exoression of opinion thereon
by tne people ol the Territory.
The election for delegates to take place on
the day of tne Presidential election, ond the
Convention to assemble on the first Monday
in December lo decide, first, whether il be ex
pedient for Kansas to come into Ihe Union at
that time, and if so decided, to proceed to form
a Constitution ond State government, which
shall be of republican form. Kansas then to
be admitted under such Constitution on an
tquol footing wiih the nriginnl Stales. The
bill provides further, that no law shall be en
forced in the Territory infringing the liberty
of speech, or of the press, or the right of the'
people to bear arms, c. it also provides
punishment lor illegal voting, or fraud and vi
olence at elections, nnd authorizes the useof
the military for that purpose. The main point
is, that the persons designated by the census
os the present inhnbilnnlsof the terrilory.shnll
decide nil points in dispute nt a fair election,
without fraud or violence, or any other impro
per influence. All the white mile inhabitants-
over 21 years of ag are to be allowed to vote.

months pTevious to the day of election, and no
other test shall be required; nnd no oath to

law, nor any other condition whatever. '

his pocket, and show it to his neighbors, as
one which meets Ihe opeosition of every Abo
